Can I rebuild my shortblock myself?

Question is in the title. Nothing wrong with the engine, just has 200K miles.

All I want to do is fresh bearings and rings. Can I just pull and replace to factory spec and replace the torque to yield bolts.

Does it require a hone with fresh rings? If so, can I do that myself by buying a honing tool and putting it on a drill?

Also, does someone have a list of which bolts are torque to yield. I assume just main, rod, and head? Does anyone know where to get the OE bolts? I can only find OE head bolts.

Thanks in advance!

New rings require a hone. Best to let a machine shop hone the block if you have never done it before. Many places to get bolts and gaskets. One suggestion is actual from Ford for the bolts.
